Image and Superscription

...What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye Me, ye hypocrites Shew Me the tribute money. And they brought unto Him a penny. And He saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? They say unto Him, Caesar’s. Then saith He unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s Matt 22:17 - 21 Look upon your money, whose image is in the palm of your hand Paper tokens of dead presidents, metal tokens of dead rulers Dead men who were not god, pay for the things you need in the land of the living Image and superscription matches the description of idolatry Your love for giving praise and tribute to men, tread very carefully Give unto Caesar that which he demands Give unto God, He who supercedes, that which He commands Caesar’s faces are on your dollars, God’s face you don’t see Thus, the things God requires from you are all spiritually Things that can’t be bought, that can’t be sold Holy things worth more than silver and gold We were made in the image of God, not man God’s superscription was written in our hearts, not by a human hand

Money is just a wordly necessity, For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things..." 1 Timothy 6:10. A wonderful witness to truth.
